Headword: Νόσον ἔχειν
Adler number: nu,494
Translated headword: to have a disease
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Meaning to have a bad habit. Euripides in Antiope [sc. uses the headword phrase in this sense].[1]
"A disease said to have fallen upon [sc. Lemnos and other regions, before spreading to Athens]": the syntax [is] according to the meaning, a matter of fact [πρᾶγμα ] obviously.[2] In Thucydides.[3]
Greek Original:
Νόσον ἔχειν: ἀντὶ τοῦ φαῦλον ἔθος ἔχειν. Εὐριπίδης Ἀντιόπῃ. Νόσος λεγόμενον ἐγκατασκῆψαι: πρὸς τὸ σημαινόμενον ἡ σύνταξις, πρᾶγμα δηλονότι. παρὰ Θουκυδίδῃ.
Notes:
In the headword phrase, the substantive is a feminine noun in the accusative singular; see LSJ s.v. νόσος, -ου, ἡ . The infinitive is the present active form from the verb ἔχω , I have or hold; see generally LSJ s.v. The headword phrase is extracted from Euripides' lost tragedy Antiope: see n. 1 below.
[1] Euripides fr. 226 Nauck (and Kannicht). Thus far the passage agrees closely with the entry for the headword phrase in Photius' Lexicon (nu259 Theodoridis) and is identical to Lexica Segueriana 109.17; cf. Bekker 109.17-8.
[2] That is, the feminine noun is modified by a neuter participle, because a disease is a thing.
[3] Thucydides 2.47.3 (web address 1), with scholion. From his celebrated account of the Athenian "plague" of 430 BCE; see OCD(4) s.v. plague, and Adcock, CAH V, pp. 200-2). For Lemnos, an island in the northern Aegean Sea (Barrington Atlas map 56 grid A2), see lambda 452. The exact identity of the pathogen responsible for the pestilence is uncertain, but recent DNA evidence implicates typhoid fever (Papagrigorakis, et al., pp. 206-14).
